You Will Die at Twenty (2021) – Arabic Language film from Sudan
Directed by Amjad Abu Alana 102minutes
During her son’s naming ceremony, a sheikh predicts that Sakina’s child, Muzami, will die at twenty. Haunted by this, Sakina becomes overly protective of him. When Muzami gets older and escapes her watchful eye he encounters friends and ideas that challenge him to question his fate. This major achievement of Sudanese cinema is a moving meditation on what it means to live in the present.
